Default Trying to install Google Earth on Lenny. How on earth??????

I have been trying to install Google Earth on Lenny in order to be able to
show a *********** insurance inspector what the junction, where my husband
and a cyclist had a slight contretemps a few weeks ago, looked like.

I am not getting very far. Googling brings up more stories of failure and
frustration than anything else. I finally tried using this:
http://www.ghacks.net/2010/05/20/install-google-earth-on-linux/

I downloaded, then:
<quote>
lisi@Tux:~$ cd /home/lisi/Peter/Google_Earth/
lisi@Tux:~/Peter/Google_Earth$ chmod u+x GoogleEarthLinux.bin
lisi@Tux:~/Peter/Google_Earth$ su
Password:
Tux:/home/lisi/Peter/Google_Earth# ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux
5.1.3535.3218..................................... .........................
No protocol specified
Tux:/home/lisi/Peter/Google_Earth#
</quote>

I am short of time now, getting riled and probably not thinking straight.

Can any kind soul point me in the right direction or give me a hint as to what
I can usefully put in a Google search? Garbage in and garbage out. :-(

Thanks for any help,
Lisi
